I Need Diverse Games’ founder Cypheroftyr is speaking at GX Australia. Come check it out!

SUNDAY, 3pm, DEVELOPER PANEL ROOM

“Writing the ‘Other’”

Anna Irwin-Schutze, Jody Toomey, Katherine Cross & Tanya DePass

At first glance, it seems obvious; Writers need to write about people and places they haven’t experienced directly for themselves. Most crime writers have not personally killed their victims. This panel is all about discovering how can write diverse and interesting characters while at the same time respecting where they come from. How do we be inclusive without having to save the whole world with every game narrative we design? What can we do to write the other to actually make a positive impact on the world and keep our stories awesome and engaging and inclusive at the same time?
